For me, it's rare. Especially if hardly anybody is around. Rolling stop, baby!

Depends on whether I am willing to pay a ticket or not.

Most stop signs should just be yields

Nobody around here seems to stop and I fear for my rear end when I actually come to a stop. Tickets are more like a lottery, most ignore stops and very few get caught.
Enjoy what you drive, safely.

Always, though I do appreciate the Author's honesty. I hope you are going slow enough to stop the car if your rolling stop will result in an accident.

personally, I think a full stop at an unoccupied intersection is unsafe... I usually gear down to the lowest gear, approach at about 4 mph and drift on through if there's nothing in sight, and I look hard... lord, hope the local police aren't reading this, but a full stop in a wasteland just seems foolish

California stops are the norm for most of the drivers I observe. I would estimate about 99% fall into this category.
